First comes ‘Breathe’. Musically it’s ageless, rolling, harmonic acid house. Lyrically it’s an acute portrait of an abusive relationship where one feels stuck – be it through financial necessity or trauma bonding in a violent, emotionally abusive or dysfunctional relationship. “There have been points in my life when I have felt trapped in those circumstances and struggled to get out,” Elizabeth explains. “Luckily, I have gotten out of those situations and I hope I have a deeper awareness to never slip back in one. Love can be blinding.”
‘Breathe’ is backed by two exceptional remixes: NYC’s Olive T builds on her high-profile DJ career with her first ever production. A barbed, jacking twist, she adds a darker layer of urgency to Elizabeth’s message. A stark statement of intent for the future, Olive is joined by the equally unstoppable NYC veteran Lauren Flax. She follows releases on the likes of The Bunker New York, Nervous, Afro Acid and Unknown To The Unknown with this crystalline synth perspective, and has more coming up on 2MR later this year.
